York Region Food Network has been a regional leader of community gardens since 1993. We operate both allotment and collective community gardens throughout York Region.
Allotment Community Gardens:
In this style of community garden, individuals gain access to their own 10’x20’ plot of land to grow food for their own consumption
Aurora Allotment Garden
Newmarket Allotment Garden
The number of plots in our allotment gardens are limited. If you’d like to inquire about gaining a plot in one of our allotment gardens, contact Jessica at jessicat @ yrfn.ca or 905-841-3101 ext. 208.
Collective Community Gardens:
In their style of community garden, residents share the land, by sharing the work and sharing the harvest
Newmarket London & Main Community Garden:
Vaughan Growing to Give Garden:
This unique garden’s main goal is that gardeners volunteer their time to grow food for the community.
Vaughan City Hall Garden:
Located at Vaughan City Hall (2141 Major Mackenzie Drive), phase 2 of the City Hall Demonstration Garden has been completed. There are 6 raised garden plots, approximately 3′ x 8′. Right now we’re looking for community support to help collect the materials and supplies we need to complete the vision. If you are interested in contributing, please contact environment @ vaughan.ca.
